How many gods are there?
What is holding you back?
“But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.” – Matthew 6:33-34
Where is the kingdom of God?
It’s inside you! That is where His peace and His hope can reside if you let it. In order to let it, His peace and His righteousness have to be the most important desire you have.
This is why it is a blessing to have depression and be poor! You have to seek it as it is all you have- when your only hope is Jesus and His kingdom you are truly Blessed!
What is His righteousness?
“Love one another!!” In loving one another we are loving God! Look at the most important things Christ did and they All revolve around Love and Giving to others!
Why is it that the rich young ruler walked away from Jesus and why is it that it’s harder for the rich to get “into the kingdom” than anyone else?
Its all about the focus! Many times its hard for a person to find Jesus if they have a comfort zone. Many times people become like a cog in the wheels of life and as long as nothing happens to disturb the machine of complacency they are fine and live fine and eventually die fine.
Until finding His peace and His Love and His joy is all that matters to us we are just a cog. It could be in a very good organization or religious program or a money making machine but the outcome is the same- emptiness!
Here is a meditation for you. Only do this if you have courage! Find a time and a place where you probably won’t be disturbed and begin to take several deep breaths to relax. As you do really relax the jaw and face muscles. Just focus on your breathing and as you do:
Breathe in and say:
Breathe out and say:
Practice this for a few minutes and trust Him no matter what happens. Remember the path to His kingdom is not always smooth- learn to trust and the path gets MUCH smoother!
Don’t Worry- Be Grace-Full!!
